Itaewon - Review

This area is located in the Yongsan-gu district of Seoul. Although some people consider a few areas of the district to be more of a shady locale, this place is recommended for those tourists who want to experience the authentic nature of the city.

Some of the major aspects of this area include the numerous multi-ethnic restaurants, big name hotels and the Seoul Central Mosque. Itaewon is also the main area of residence for the United States soldiers posted in Korea.
